Jamie Foxx Describes ‘Bad Headache’ That Led to Being ‘Gone For 20 Days’ During 2023 Health Crisis

It’s been more than a year since Jamie Foxx was hospitalized due to what has so far been an described as a “medical complication.” Though he spent nearly a month in the hospital, the Oscar-winning star has not revealed any details of what crisis he suffered to date.

But in an impromptu scrum outside a hotel in Phoenix recently, Foxx gave a group of fans a few details about how he ended up in the ER. In a clip posted to TikTok by motivational speaker Dr. Brenda Combs, Foxx revealed that he has almost no memory of that time.

“Look, April 11 last year — bad headache. I asked my boy for an Advil,” Foxx said, pausing and then snapping his fingers. “I was gone for 20 days. I don’t remember anything.” He explains that his sister, Diedra Dixon and daughter, Corinne Foxx, took him to a doctor’s office in Atlanta, where he got a cortisone shot. Pointing to his head, Foxx said the doctor told him, “There’s something going on up there.”

Foxx then paused again and said cryptically, “I won’t say what on camera… I don’t want to say it on camera.”

In March, Foxx, 56, said he was getting ready to open up about the health crisis. “Everybody wants to know what happened, and I’m going to tell you what happened. But I’ve gotta do it in my way,” Foxx said at the time. “I’m gonna do it in a funny way. We’re gonna be on the stage. We’re gonna get back to the standup sort of roots.” Foxx teased that the show would be called “What Had Happened Was” and that it will feature “all the things that happened, especially on our side of our community.”

Last July, Foxx posted an emotional video update on his recovery. “I went through something that I thought I would never, ever go through. I know a lot of people were waiting or wanting to hear updates, but to be honest with you, I just didn’t want you to see me like that,” Foxx said. “I want you to see me laughing, having a good time partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie, television show. I didn’t want you to see me with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was gonna make it through.”

Last April, daughter Corinne Foxx announced that her dad had been hospitalized for an undisclosed “medical complication” while filming the Netflix movie Back in Action in Atlanta with Cameron Diaz.
